Info for The Art of Facts
“Despite the fact that they were both present for the entire affair, Paul Dillon & Jason Merritt somehow did not meet on a co-headlining Sparklehorse/Mercury Rev tour of the Eastern U.S. back in 1999.
Jeff Mercel was there, playing drums with Mercury Rev - Paul was there as guitar tech for Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous, and Jason was there on the same bus as Jeff & his upstate compatriots in his official capacity as ride-along-poet-in-residence.
I think the tour lasted about two weeks.
Flash forward 20 years and to the first item of official Miracle Whips business which was a field trip to the local Goodwill to purchase a large & unwieldy 1970’s era cast iron electric typewriter in order to place it, and themselves, on Jason's porch every weekend & get to work on writing these damn songs.
Ultimately Jeff Mercel was flown out from his home in Saugerties, NY to Portland, Oregon where he and the other two decamped to Collin Hegna’s Revolver Studios to record every song live, together, in the room, close-mic’d and in close quarters.
These recordings were mixed by Paul & Collin and subsequently mastered at Wild Chorus studios in Knoxville, Tennessee by Scott Minor, (also of Sparklehorse fame...), and resulting record album is something that I think you'll agree is quite special...” (Donald Twain, Porch Music Magazine)
